There is currently a major problem of bullying and harassment occuring at MCTC. If you have been or are a current victim of any sort of harassment or bullying at this school, please share your story. Whether you have been a victim of bullying from a teacher, student, or adminstration, word needs to get out about this serious problem. Don't suggest we try to talk to admistration they do not care. Students need help and we need it to stop.

Alot goes on behind the scences at Mountwest. From the outside looking its a good school supported by the reputation of the University.However, bullying is occuring and when it is brought before adminstration or even the instructor a blind eye is given, granted not all instructors are like this but what is the point of seeking advice when 1 nothing is done and 2 their is a major confidentially breech at this insitution. Personally, if I wasnt getting ready to graduate I would have already transfered to the university at least people care there and dont screw their student over.

I've heard that the professors for the PTA program try to fail their students. When you have a fairly stringent application process to only accept serious students and you still fail over half the class, something is very very wrong. The teachers don't help you at all and they try their hardest to set you up for FAILURE. Something needs to change.

Fairly stringent acceptance? Everyone gets a letter in the mail when they graduate high school saying that they were accepted. I wouldn't call that stringent.

Also, if you're failing in community college, you need to jump off a bridge.

Anonymous, to get into mctc is easy that is correct. But, the PTA program is not. They only accept a few students in that program.

It sounds like someone certainly has an ax to grind. All the professors that I've encountered have been more than willing to help, you just need to make that first step. Maybe more focus on studying and less on running your mouth about being grumpy with less than desirable results should be in order.

Between the application, test, interview process; I know quite a few people that have not gotten into the program. And quit being so judgmental.

Did you not make it in the program? Sounds like you had issues trying to get through the application, test, writing sample and interview. Or maybe you should stop talking about a program you can't get into. Or are jealous of those sweet PTA students and their very nice professors.

By the way, it's a beautiful day! Bartledoo!

I'm glad someone brought this serious subject up. When Chuck Norris adjuncts my classes, I feel threatened for my life.

Your right I did not make it into that program. I did however make it into a PT program and have been practicing for many years. During that time I have had the chance to talk to multiple different PTA students from this program. The ones who graduated years ago do very well. Look at the programs numbers. The failure rate has only been as high as it is since the current staff has been calling the shots. The students I saw years ago praised the program. The students I've seen in the past couple of years absolutely abhor it. You say sweet professors, but sweet to who? For every student from the PTA program in the past few year that consider the professors there sweet, you'll find ten more that would disagree with you.
fire them

They should totally fire some of those teachers in PTA program. If their salary is based on tuition paid for a 25+ person program and they are failing over half of them (a lot in the first semester), where's the money coming from? The program would be sooooo much better with less turtlenecks around.
one extreme

I've heard that one of the professors said that she was taken advantage of once by a student. She swore then that she would never be a push over again and literally went from one extreme to another. Now she's turned into a cast iron b!tch who won't take the time to help anyone but her chosen few pets. She punishes everyone on the off chance that one might try to take advantage of her again.

Is it the Director of Continuing & Community Education or just the professors?

Program coordinator, clinical education coordinator. Is there anyone else that would be considered a full time professor? I know a number of people teach a class or two here and there, but given what the two primary full time staff has done to the program it's no wonder they cannot keep any others. I would venture to say that along with their high failure rate, their high professor turnover rate speaks volumes.

Hmm, you actually sound like one of the part-time teachers there. The overweight, middle aged PTA that thinks he's a PT. Why is it that you always picked the cute girls for the hands on demonstrations? Perv. And just to let you know, 90% of the time we were laughing at you and not with you. Don't try to stand up for the rest of the program and it's professors just because the school gives you a reason to get up on your pedestal and feel good about yourself for a change. You're just as bad as the rest of them.

That particular program is very tight laced on who and how many get in. Thats life and alot of schools are that way. Have you heard how hard it is to get into nursing school. If your good at what you do then you should have nothing to worry about. I am a MCTC student, I have been on the Deans List 3 times with a G.P.A. of 3.7- 4.0. I have had nothing but good teachers and some great teachers. It is up to you to ask for help, nobody is a mind reader.
People assume its MCTC and everything is so simple. It is a college accredited school. They have the same standards.It just geared toward more non traditional students.
If MCTC is to hard for you or you feel like your being bullied, go give Marshall a try and see how you do with their standards.....
then again maybe you need to go to the Junior College.
